Girls in Technology is led by a committee of Women in Technology (WIT) members. We offer educational and hands-on STEM programs that promote creativity and innovation, and inspire girls to pursue STEM-related careers.

GIT programs reach over 500 girls in the DC metropolitan area. Our programs help girls identify pathways to careers in STEM through engagement with women executives in STEM-related fields and STEM experiences provided by companies in the District, Maryland, and Northern Virginia.

Girls in Technology programs are made possible through the generosity of corporate sponsorships, Women in Technology and STEM for Her. Program speakers, mentors and committee members volunteer their time to make a difference in the lives of the future generation.

Our Programs Include:
  1. Girls in Technology Mentor Protégé Program
  2. Girls in Technology Sharing Our Success (SOS) Program
  3. Girls in Technology Cyber Patriot Teams
  4. Girls in Technology Scholarship Program
